This session was so so special to me. I've known Jess for as long as I can remember. Seriously, I couldn't tell you when we met, I just know I very little. She was my sister's age and I grew up playing soccer with her brother. In high school we scooped ice cream together at the local ice cream shop owned by her best friend's family - only the best job ever. We had SO many laughs and grew so close there.
So, fast forward all these years and I was so excited when Jess asked me to photograph her adorable family. We ran all around Lynch park and the beach - doing our best to keep little Ariana occupied and smiling. When all she wanted to do was go in that water!
Ariana was so cute, smiling when I didn't have my camera up, and wanting to hold and help me take pictures - you know like a typical toddler. We had a blast making her laugh and I especially loved seeing how much she loved her mom and dad.
Jess and Nick, thank you so much for rolling with everything and all the games and for asking me to capture your beautiful family. I hope you love the photos! I can't wait to see Ari grow bigger and I hope to see you guys soon!
Until next time, live creatively friends.
